One of the "made my day" moments in my life was when I had been studying Schwarzchild's GR solution for a spherical non-rotating massive object. He gets a quadratic equation, and its two solutions are almost universally interpreted as being the exterior and interior of a black hole. But I didn't (and don't) think that was right: I thought that (as often happens in physics) only one of the two quadratic solutions applied to the problem at hand, and the other was just a spurious mathematical result with no physical significance. So with my interpretation, there IS nothing beyond the event horizon. I expressed that view on a moderated usenet group ("foundations", which no longer exists), and said that I realized I was in the tiny minority in that view. The moderator told me I was in good company, though ... Dirac had published a paper in the mid 60's concluding the same thing. The moderator gave me an on-line link to his paper, and I read it, and confirmed that our views were the same. If Dirac ever changed his mind, I'm not aware of it.
